Some memories are better left forgotten…

After a daring escape from the scientists at Diotech who created her, Seraphina believes she is finally safe from the horrors of her past. But new threats await Sera and her boyfriend, Zen, at every turn as Zen falls prey to a mysterious illness and Sera’s extraordinary abilities make it more and more difficult to stay hidden. Meanwhile, Diotech has developed a dangerous new weapon designed to apprehend her. A weapon that even Sera will be powerless to stop. Her only hope of saving Zen’s life and defeating the company that made her is a secret buried deep within her mind. A secret that Diotech will kill to protect. And it won’t stay forgotten for long.

Packed with mystery, suspense, and romance, this riveting second installment of Jessica Brody’s Unremembered trilogy delivers more heart-pounding action as loyalties are tested, love becomes a weapon, and no one’s memories are safe.

My Review

I’m disappointed to say that I still had trouble feeling the romantic connection between Zen and Sera. This book would have had much more of an impact (especially the ending) if I could have been more into the romance. I’m yet again disappointed by this. I love romance! Heck, I felt more of a connection between Sera and Kaelen.

Other than that, the story was very good and interesting. I had a bit of a difficult time staying completely captivated near the beginning of the book. I’m not sure why.  As I read more and more, though, I became more and more captivated and I didn’t want to put it down at the end.

There was really only one main addition to the characters and that was Kaelen, who I actually liked quite a bit. He’s another, newer version of Sera, so he takes some getting used to, but I actually liked him right away for some reason.

I’m also pleased to say that while this book is the second in a trilogy, it did not feel like a filler book like so many do!  Yay!

The next book will be very interesting to read! I’m looking forward to it.
